Quotes About Sacrifice In War

"I see this as the central issue of our time: how to find a substitute for war in human ingenuity, imagination, courage, sacrifice, patience...War is not inevitable, however persistent it is, however long a history it has in human affairs. It does not come out of some instinctive human need. It is manufactured by political leaders, who then must make a tremendous effort--by enticement, by propaganda, by coercion--to mobilize a normally reluctant population to go to war." - Author: Howard Zinn

Quotes About Aviator Sunglasses

"But it was from him - with his cool, long sideburns and aviator sunglasses, and box of watercolor paints (and artists paycheck) - from him we learned how to create beauty where none exists, how to be generous beyond our means, how to change a small corner of the world just by making a little dinner for a few friends." - Author: Gabrielle Hamilton

Quotes About Every Moment

"Neither loss of father, nor loss of mother, dear as she was to Mr Thornton, could have poisoned the remembrance of the weeks, the days, the hours, when a walk of two miles, every step of which was pleasant, as it brought him nearer and nearer to her, took him to her sweet presence - every step of which was rich, as each recurring moment that bore him away from her made him recal some fresh grace in her demeanour, or pleasant pungency in her character." - Author: Elizabeth Gaskell

Quotes About Loving A Person For Who They Are

"Now—after years of knowing what real problems were, after living with a man who was cautiously loving but no longer fawningly committed, a man who was rational and smart but not quite passionate or spontaneous, after slowly spinning away from the person I vowed to be true to for the rest of my years, after feeling like I lost myself in his shadows and goals—the arguments over restaurants, over who took the trash out last seemed futile, silly, and so much easier than the hurdles that Henry and I would come to face in the road of the future." - Author: Allison Winn Scotch

Quotes About Violating Trust

"I have seen the consequences of attempting to shortcut this natural process of growth often in the business world, where executives attempt to "buy" a new culture of improved productivity, quality, morale, and customer service with strong speeches, smile training, and external interventions, or through mergers, acquisitions, and friendly or unfriendly takeovers. But they ignore the low-trust climate produced by such manipulations. When these methods dont work, they look for other Personality Ethic techniques that will—all the time ignoring and violating the natural principles and processes on which a high-trust culture is based." - Author: Stephen R. Covey

Quotes About Wailing

"When she treads on my grave and feels as if shes trampling on that doting old mans bones, my spirit will still be alive, feeling the whole weight of her body, feeling pain, feeling the fine-grained velvety smoothness of the soles of her feet. Even after Im dead Ill be aware of that. I cant believe I wont. In the same way, Satsuko will be aware of the presence of my spirit, joyfully enduring her weight. Perhaps she may even hear my charred bones rattling together, chuckling, moaning, creaking. And that would by no means occur only when she was actually stepping on my grave. At the very thought of those Buddhas Footprints modeled after her own feet she would hear my bones wailing under the stone. Between sobs I would scream: "It hurts! It hurts! … Even though it hurts, Im happy—Ive never been more happy, Im much, much happier than when I was alive! … Trample harder! Harder!" - Author: Junichirō Tanizaki

Quotes About Employees And Customers

"The ads in the papers all said help wanted, will train, but wherever she went she was turned down. "The positions just been filled," she was told again and again. Or, "We wouldnt want to upset the other employees." At the department store where she had once bought all her hats and silk stockings they would not hire her as a cashier because they were afraid of offending the customers. Instead they offered her work adding up sales slips in a small dark room in the back where no one could see her but she politely declined."I was afraid Id ruin my eyes back there," she told us. "I was afraid I might accidentally remember who I was and ... offend myself." - Author: Julie Otsuka

Quotes About Defending The One You Love

"Because it all derived from Superman. I mean, I love all the characters, but Superman is just this perfect human pop-culture distillation of a really basic idea. Hes a good guy. He loves us. He will not stop in defending us. How beautiful is that? Hes like a sci-fi Jesus. Hell never let you down. And only in fiction can that guy actually exist, because real guys will always let you down one way or another. We actually made up an idea that beautiful. Thats just cool to me. We made a little paper universe where all of the above is true." - Author: Grant Morrison

Quotes About Wonderful Husbands

"Saints make wonderful grandfathers and lousy husbands." - Author: Pat Conroy

Quotes About Living Life For God

"Knowing about God is crucially important for the living of our lives. As it would be cruel to an Amazonian tribesmen to fly him to London, put him down without explanation in Trafalgar Square and leave him, as one who knew nothing of English or England, to fend for himself, so we are cruel to ourselves if we try to live in this world without knowing about the God whose world it is and who runs it .The world becomes a strange, mad, painful place, and life in it a disappointing and unpleasant business, for those who do not know about God. Disregard the study of God, and you sentence yourself to stumble and blunder through life blindfold, as it were , with no sense of direction, and no understanding of what surrounds you. This way you can waste your life and lose your soul." - Author: J.I. Packer
